Happy 4th of July

Posted by madjillmom on July 4, 2010

Interesting to Note:
About a week ago, our oldest son (a new 2nd Lieutenant) was preparing one of his wool berets for use. This preparation involves shaving a massive amount of fuzz from the outside of the beret. Then you dampen it and weigh it down. Then after this, he put it on his head for further shaping. I went upstairs, he was sitting at a desk with his beret on his head. I couldn’t help but notice a tag peeking out from under the back. It said “Made in Vietnam”.

As a further aside, the large telephone books that he used to weigh down the beret stayed on the kitchen counter for close to a week before I put them up. As Glenn likes to say “the country’s in the very best of hands”.
